I would like to see how bad the body is tweaked after a few thousand miles of towing like that.

I like how they avoid the structurally inferior frame of the vehicle in favor of the much stronger spot welded sheet metal roof.

Actually, there are quite a few people with hitches on the front of their trucks for parking. It is very useful in very tight conditions. But they run into the same issue of not being able to see. That is why you need a second person to guide you.
